Earn Miles

Miles are SAA Voyager’s official currency. You can earn Miles with every qualifying transaction with our partners. Please note the different types of Miles available.

Earn Base Miles to your account balance and spend them on Awards.

With SAA, and SAA marketing flight numbers where Mango is the operating carrier, you earn 1 Base Mile for every R1.60 (or equivalent) you spend on base fare and carrier-imposed fees.

On other airline partners, you earn Base Miles based on class and distance flown.

Non-airline earn structures differ among partners.

See detailed earning structures.

All Base Miles earned with SAA, Star Alliance and SAA marketing flight numbers where Mango is the operating carrier count as Tier Miles.

Tier Miles do not increase your balance, but determine your elite status. Each elite status comes with a unique set of benefits.

Up to 100% of Base Miles in Tier Activity Bonus, for each SAA flight depending on tier status.

Occasional Voyager promotions will offer Bonus Miles in addition to the Base Miles.

Bonus Miles are also awarded as a standard Voyager programme offer.

These include:

  • 2 500 Enrolment Bonus Miles
  • 75% of Base Miles in Tier Activity Bonus, for each SAA flight as a Platinum member

Bonus Miles don’t count towards tier, but add to the account balance and can be spent for awards.
